Selena & Orlando Post Snuggle Video ... Your Place or Mine?

5/12/2016 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Selena Gomez-Orlando Bloom cuddlefest didn't end in the club ... because now TMZ has obtained video of the duo leaving together in the same car. 

In the video, you can see the pair making a beeline for a waiting car last Friday night as they left LIGHT nightclub inside Mandalay Bay. Selena couldn't hide in that silver dress, while Orlando tried to slip out low key ... head down with a hat.  

The video has all the makings of a sure thing -- but our Selena sources say she's adamant there were other people in the car with them ... and they all made a late night fast food run together. After that though, Selena's insisting she and Orlando went to separate corners (hotel rooms). 

As TMZ first reported, the pair got super handsy at an after-party for Selena's concert. 


Steve Aoki Animal Rights Group Goes Apes*** Chimps Don't Like Dress Up

5/10/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0509-steve-aoki-tmzSteve Aoki's new music video borders on bestiality ... or at least chimp-on-woman love ... so claims a very angry animal rights group. 

The brouhaha is over Steve's vid, "Can't Go Home," where a chimpanzee goes bananas over a chick. The girl in the video parades her prize around in various outfits, including a silver chain and gym shorts. 

The North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance is outraged at Aoki and Adam Lambert, who's featured in the song.

NAPSA claims trained primates are poorly treated, often ripped away from their mothers at a very early age and put in training houses where they're abused. Once the entertainment projects are completed, the chimps are viewed as useless and left to psychologically suffer for the rest of their lives.

We reached out to Aoki ... so far no word back.

5/4/2016 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0504_50cent_Andrew-Farrells_tmz-instagramThe family of the autistic teen 50 Cent bullied still wants the rapper to open up his wallet, but this time it's for a good cause and far less cash ... the family's attorney tells TMZ.

Attorney Matthew J. Hammer says Andrew Farrell and his family want 50 to cough up $10k for Autism Speaks, an autism advocacy group.

The donation is far less than the $1 million Andrew's stepdad was first eyeing.

We're told Andrew and his family received 50's signed, albeit short apology Tuesday via an email after news broke of Andrew's disabilities and were happy he said sorry.

As we reported, 50 got in Andrew's face at an airport accusing him of working while on drugs, when in fact he's autistic and is also afflicted by Asperger's.


50 has yet to answer back about the $10k donation.

Dana Stubblefield I Didn't Rape That Woman ... Sex Was Consensual

Breaking News

0503-stubblefiald-getty-01Ex-NFL star Dana Stubblefield says he's NO RAPIST -- claiming the allegations he sexually assaulted a mentally disabled woman are "false and fraudulent." 

As we previously reported, the former 49ers superstar was charged with 5 felonies -- after prosecutors say he raped a woman he found on a babysitting website and had invited to his home for a job interview. 

But Stubblefield is adamant the sex was consensual -- and he claims he can prove it ... with a lie detector test.

In fact, Stubblefield's lawyer, Ken Rosenfeld, says he's already provided the District Attorney's Office "with professional lie detector results that clearly show the encounter was consensual."

Rosenfeld says the woman had also asked Dana for a job and money after the encounter -- which he claims is further proof there was no rape. 

"Dana Stubblefield is being unfairly targeted due to his celebrity and wealth by someone with full motivation to lie," Rosenfeld said.

Stubblefield's lawyer also says his client wasn't even notified of the allegations until nearly a year after the incident. 

"The clear motivation here is money."

If convicted on all counts, officials say Stubblefield faces "substantial prison time." 

MLB's Carlos Martinez Calls BS on STD Lawsuit ... '100% False'

4/29/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0422-carlos-martinez-getty-01St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez is ferociously disputing a lawsuit -- in which the 24-year-old is accused of giving a woman non-life threatening STDs ... after swearing he was clean. 

The woman behind the suit, filed in district court in Miami, claims she began a romantic relationship with Martinez in 2012 -- and the two had an on-and-off relationship for years.

According to the suit, the two reconnected last year -- and began having sex again on Dec. 16th. Two days later, the woman claims she began to feel ill and later tested positive for multiple STDs. 

The woman claims she had grilled Martinez about his sexual health before they hooked up and he "swore to God that he was not infected with any sexually transmitted disease."

Soon after the woman informed Martinez about her condition, he allegedly bolted for the Dominican Republic and never called her back. 

Now, she's suing him for battery, negligent transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, fraud and more ... and she's demanding more than $1.5 million in damages. 

We spoke with Martinez's attorney Ruben Scolavino who tells us Carlos adamantly denies the allegations.

"I can tell you most assuredly the allegations are 100% false."

Iggy Azalea I Told Nick Vegas Was Bad Idea ...

4/22/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Iggy Azalea says she tried to warn Nick Young that his boys trip to Vegas last weekend would "look bad" in the wake of the whole cheating scandal ... but he went anyway -- and she's cool with it. 

The rapper says her fiance actually had a pretty good reason for the trip -- and it wasn't to party and go crazy ... it was more business than pleasure. 

We asked if the fact she went out sans engagement ring over the weekend was a message to the NBA star -- but she shot that down hard ... saying she doesn't think women have to rock the rock 24/7. 

"It's nothing personal ... it doesn't go with the outfit."

Long story short ... seems Nick's out of the doghouse and the engagement is still on.

Exclusive Details

0420-madonna-driveway-tmz-08Madonna's Upper East Side driveway just got the facelift it needed to clear her name with NYC ... and it was done just in the nick of time.

TMZ broke the story ... Madonna was warned by the city to remove the illegal "no parking" signage she had posted in front of her driveway. The city's Dept. of Transportation tells us homeowners have 30 days to resolve the issue, or get a $250 fine. 

The deadline is 2 days away, and Wednesday morning we spotted the curb had a fresh grey paint job, and the "no parking" stamp had been removed. A D.O.T. rep confirms they've since re-inspected the location and found it to be in compliance.

Not that the $250 would have been a hardship for Madge.

4/13/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

041216-vince-neil-tmz-02Vince Neil has an uphill battle to clear his name after his Las Vegas battery citation, since cops say security cameras caught him red-handed ... with a fistful of the victim's hair. 

Neil claimed he only "pushed past" a female autograph seeker at the Aria last week ... but according to police records, obtained by TMZ, officers reviewed surveillance footage which showed the Motley Crue frontman pulling the woman down to the ground by her hair.

Neil has denied it got that physical. She says she was left stunned, and suffered a sore neck ... as well as pain in her lower back and hip.

Cameras also captured the woman taking pics with Carrot Top before she saw Nic Cage. She claims she said, "Nicolas, I love you" and followed the actor before being pulled down.

As for the scene outside -- cops say Neil was actually trying to fight another individual, while Nic tried to play peacemaker.

Shawne Merriman Shawn Oakman's Rape Allegation Hurts Draft Stock ... Even If He's Innocent

4/8/2016 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shawn Oakman lost millions of dollars this week ... even if he's INNOCENT ... this according to Shawne Merriman who says just an allegation alone can destroy an NFL prospect's draft stock. 

Oakman -- who was regarded as a top NFL prospect -- is being investigated for a possible sexual assault in Waco, TX over the weekend ... but has denied any wrongdoing. He has not been arrested or charged with a crime. 

But Merriman -- who spent 7 years in the NFL -- says the damage to Oakman's draft stock has already been done. 

"Even if it's not true, or even if he is acquitted, teams still look at him as a bad apple and nobody really wants that in an organization."

He added, "Right now is the worst time you can get in trouble for anything."

It's true ... just ask La'el Collins -- who took a HUGE hit in last year's NFL draft when police announced they wanted to speak with him about the shooting death of a woman he was once romantically linked to. 

Collins -- who was supposed to be a Top 15 pick -- was never arrested or charged with a crime ... but didn't get drafted at all and ended up signing a free agent contract with the Cowboys for much less than he was worth. 

Steve Wynn Rich People Hate Being Around Poor People

4/8/2016 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0408-steve-wynn-tmz-01Steve Wynn is America's modern day Marie Antoinette ... or at least he sounded like her during a meeting with investors where the multi billionaire blasted poor people.

Wynn -- owner of the Wynn and Encore -- made a presentation this week and said, "Rich people only like being around rich people. Nobody likes being around poor people, especially poor people."

CNBC reports the casino mogul was talking up Wynn Resorts as offering aspirational appeal to everyone.

He added that his company "caters to the top end of the gaming world. We're sort of Chanel or Louis Vuitton."

"Let them eat cake" was catchier.

0408-shawn-oakman-getty-01Ex-Baylor football star Shawn Oakman -- a top prospect in the upcoming NFL Draft -- is being investigated for rape ... but he has NOT been arrested or charged with a crime.  

According to the Waco Police Dept., the former Baylor defensive end met the accuser at Scruffy Murphy's bar between 2 and 3 AM on April 3rd and brought her back to his apartment, near the Baylor campus.

Oakman allegedly forced the woman into his bedroom, tore off her clothes and sexually assaulted her.

The woman eventually left the apartment and went to a nearby hospital where she was treated for injuries and examined for sexual assault ... so say police docs. 

Cops say they spoke with Oakman who "admitted to only having consensual sex" with the woman.

Investigators searched Oakman's apartment for evidence -- and reportedly seized comforters and sheets.

Ralphie May Concert Canceled Due to 'F the Indians' Backlash

4/7/2016 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Ralphie May just got smacked in the wallet -- his upcoming concert has been canceled after audio surfaced of an old routine he did ripping Native Americans for being drunks. 

The Sanford Center in Bemidji, MN tells TMZ it's pulling the plug on Ralphie's concert that was set for Saturday. Bemidji has a large Native American population, and we're told the show was yanked in direct response to the audio of a bit May did in 2007. 

He's been getting blasted for saying things like, "F**k a bunch of Indians" ... and "dry up you bunch of alcoholics." Ralphie posted an apology Wednesday night, saying the audio is highly edited and omitted his punchline, which made it clear the rant was all a joke.

For folks in Bemidji ... we're told full refunds will be given, and the box office is throwing in a ticket to "Celtic Fire" Irish step dancing for your troubles.
